Travel Tryouts: Facial Cleansers

I love a good facial cleanser, and I feel like there's so many different types, I want to use them all, all of the time, but alas, I only have one face.  SO, getting to use the sample cleansers I have is great, I get to try some new stuff and it's a great way for me to try to conquer my I want to try every cleanser in the world desire.  Ya feel me!?

First, I always removed my makeup before cleansing with Neutrogena's Makeup Remover Cleansing Towelettes.  I love Neutrogena's Cleansing Towelettes, particularly from the Oil-Free Grapefruit line but I bought these quickly at CVS before I left because they were travel size.

Okay so after all makeup is removed, I went through my Liz Earle Cleanse & Polish Hot Cloth Cleanser. I'm actually going to do a much more thorough review of this in the near future.  Birchbox was kind enough to send me a full-size bottle to review, and I'll have that up within the next month, BUT, I wanted to get through this sample first so I could get amped for switching to this cleanser 100% when I get home.  

So, all I'm going to say here in this mini-review is....this cleanser is amazing and so rediculously creamy I just fell in love instantly.  My skin has felt GREAT each time after using it, and I can't wait to delve into using it full time,

The second cleanser I used is also from Birchbox, my April Birchbox to be exact, the Shea Terra Organic Rose Hips Black Soap Deep Pore Facial Cleanser, woah that's a long name.

Okay so right off the bat it looks odd because it's black, but I didn't mind that.  Also, it smells a bit strange, but I know that's only because it's so natural, so that's actually a good thing.  Aside from those two things, this is a great product.  It seriously gets your skin squeaky clean, I felt a little dry after using it, but I didn't mind so much, it wasn't bad at all, and I knew my skin was totally cleansed and fresh.  If you follow-up with your nighttime moisturizer you're good to go. 

Hope you enjoyed my roundup of travel facial cleansers! XO
